China and the Netherlands are above the world average in electricity consumption for charging electric vehicles (EVs). The widespread adoption of EVs hinges on the availability of charging infrastructure. In 2022, major countries substantially expanded their networks of EV chargers, with over 600,000 public slow charging points installed globally. China led this effort, with 360,000 of these chargers, while Europe ranked second with 460,000 slow chargers, marking a 50% increase from the previous year. This expansion has been driven by governmental policies to reduce carbon emissions and a growing consumer preference for EVs.
